The Islamics who plot to come to America to kill found another friend in the federal courts.
A judge in Maryland has become the second federal judge in the country to block the Trump administration’s latest travel ban hours before it was set to take full effect.
U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang granted a nationwide preliminary injunction late Tuesday, after U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii blocked the revised ban. The ban sought to place travel restrictions on citizens of eight countries.
The new restrictions had been slated to go into effect today.
The White House called Watson’s Tuesday’s decision “dangerously flawed.” The Justice Department says it will appeal.
The restrictions were to apply to citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — as well as some Venezuelan government officials and their families.
